From Argonauta Records:
September 3, 2021 will see Roman stoner rockers Solar Mantra to release their first full-length album through Argonauta Records.
The band, who formed in 2017, takes its listener on a wild fuzz rock trip into a psychedelic wonderland. With their catchy yet powerful and heavily groovy stoner sound, the Italian four-piece creates a revitalizing vibe that is immediately evident. From the crushing album opener »Stone Rider« to the equal bracing, grande finale »Solar Mantra«, »Away« unleashes eleven gritty and hooking songs that deliver the perfect soundtrack for a roadtrip in the sun!
“»Away« is the result of a new creativity vein that came from the new line up, since 2019, with Francesco on guitar and Federico on bass,” says vocalist Tommaso Santillo. “The different influences from our first EP created a new sound and groove that comes to light on our new album »Away«.
The leitmotif is the hypocrisy of the appearance, about the difference between our real emotions, feelings, beliefs, opinions and what we want or we are forced to show in this “over-ruled” social environment. The artwork expresses the will to escape from this black hole of social rules and regulations towards the inspiriting light of the sun… in one word: »Away«.”
Solar Mantra is:
Tommaso Santillo – Voice
Francesco Carretti – Guitar
Federico “Quattro” Lombardi – Bass
Simone Bianchini – Drums
